health care. you saw that little clip that john podesta pointed out like medicare is for a single payer system. i find the whole idea laughable especially after we've been through the past few months with just a single obama care, the federal website, totally inept. the president himself said in the press conference thursday, geez, this health insurance thing is complicated. i mean, could you imagine going to a startup called amazon and sent out a note, sorry for the problems. retail is complicated. the idea of government controlling health insurance, it would surely send us back into the depression. >> jim, you don't necessarily agree, getting to single payer is not necessarily a bad thing according to you. >> no, brenda, it's not but as to the folks who are living or think they're living in an episode of "the x files" that was not the plan all along. i mean, there couldn't be more space in between obama care and the single payer health care system. look, we have single payer health care already in this country, it's called medicare. and guess what? medicare has a higher approval ratin

no. 7. >> the clerk: item 7. action item reconciliation of kaiser medicare rate. >> good afternoon, neale kosher. nice to see everyone again. i'm going to walk you through the document labeled kaiser medicare rate final rate for 2014. when we met on june 13th of this year, we stated that the medicare advantage rates for kaiser were preliminary, that we needed to get additional information brought to kaiser. they cooked the final rates and they would let you know at that time. as soon as we knew what they were and then we can talk about how we decide what to do whether they would have to be higher, the rates or lower. we always hope because of the timing and everything comes in better and there is money to be appropriated in some fashion for the cost of the rates. we finalized everything in the system. that is done to be clear on that part. so what happened was kaiser did their magic and got their final numbers and our number we posted at the 14th of june was $346.45. the final number is $344. that saves the city $2.8 million. which is a very good thing. they do their calculations.

that elderly man who said i don't want the government fooling with my medicare. do they know johnson put that federal program? you remember some of the rhetoric. roosevelt said nothing to fear but fear itself and kennedy said ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. reagan said it's mourning in america and the pride is that. we remember these inspirational talks. for the moment kennedy and reagan are the ones who fill that bill. it will be interesting to see what evolves over the next 50 years. i am very selfish. i say i wish it would could come back in a couple hundred years and see what has happened in the country but my grandiosity does not extend that far.

had incomplete but deeply important successes with medicaid and medicare, even cobra policies. but it was not until president obama and speaker pelosi finally made this decades-long struggle a top agenda item that we finally, at least in some measure, began to move toward a meaningful, contemporary expansion of health care coverage for all americans. and republicans fought it every step of the way. members of the republican party purposely misrepresented the bill when it was a proposal. once it became law, they aggressively lied about its provisions and what they would mean for american families and businesses. they resisted their legal responsibility as e elected officials to enforce the law, taking it all the way to the supreme court. and they have used confederate-era tactics of attempted millification to kill the law upon implementation. and now, well now, democrats are joining in! howling about the horrors of obama care and its faulty website. and yesterday the u.s. house of representatives approved a bill proposed by congressman fred upton that would allow insurers to keep selli

medicare and welfare subsidies. congresswoman jan chick cowsky is an illinois democrat who have called walmart bosses welfare kings. i asked wall mart's bill simon about your contention that taxpayers are subsidizing walmart workers. i want you to listen to the response. >> the congresswoman has her perspective. it comes from an angle that is misinformed completely. not completely but in part by the groups that are feeding her the information. by what, the pro-union groups? >> yes. she says hour misinformed, but that's simply not the case. is he wrong? >>> he's absolutely wrong. half the walmart workers make less than $10 an hour. so what do they have to do in order to make ends meet? they go tthe government and ask for medicaid. they ask for food stamps. they ask for subsidized housing. and why? because they are paid poverty wages by the largest private employer in the country. so, yes, let's talk about the makers and the takers. it seems to me that walmart is benefiting by having the government, having taxpayers subsidize their workers that they pay in unfair wage to. >> so the avera

the funding comes from is out of medicare. so you have this element of seniors, especially in rural districts where medicare advantage played a major role in keeping your provider because of the reimbursement rate issues that are cognizant that that may be a problem. they took money out of medicare to put to medicaid. that's an issue. our members are very capable and confident in talking about alternatives that we would offer for a patient-centered health care delivery system. but it doesn't put much good to put that up on the floor in a comprehensive way when you know, let's been honest, that the senate is not going to take it up. the president is not going to go along with that. so when one party passes something exclusively, denies the other party to even offer a single amendment on the house floor, which occurred, then they own it and embrace it. and they owned it and embraced it and overpromised and underdelivered and it is -- it is the -- it's the tsunami that washed up, there's a lot of debris on the ground. it will be the defining issue in 2014. and they got to explain it. w

medicare. i mean, he stretched what was possible, right? he went for the moon. but for the tax cut, he really, he tried to find stuff with congress. it's a different situation, right? the democrats controlled both houses of congress during the kennedy administration. some of them were conservative democrats who were not too kindly disposed towards some of the things that kennedy was trying to do. so i think, you know, focus on what's possible, stick to your principles and look for, look for things that can be a win/win, you know? like the free trade and the tax cut and the military spending. i mean, all that stuff there was broad, there was pretty broad support for that sometimes cut across party lines or ideological lines. so, i mean, growth is a great example, right? who's against growth? maybe some hard core environmentalist, but -- [laughter] but, you know, or winning against the soviet union. who was against that? so kennedy managed to -- and i think all successful politicians -- managed to find what, i think frank luntz would call them 90% issues. 90 percent of the people are for
